Is anyone experiencing difficulties in downloading complete work units? In the past 48 hrs I have had numerous instances where a work unit starts to download fine but comes to a screeching halt, generally around 19.06%. The download manager then goes into an endless series of attempts to restart but only succeeds in extending the time period before the next attempt. I would estimate I have aborted 50-100 such units, some of which have been trying to download for 8 hrs and more. It is definitely not a hardware or network problem, I work on 23 different projects and the problem does not seem evident on any others.

As an example I cite this from the message log:
